has failed to respond to a terrorist attack appropriately, treated as a law enforcement and diplomatic issue rather than it is the security issue that it is. at its core, this is yet another reflection of president obama's schizophrenic counterterrorism policy. the same administration that unapologetically reins down drone attacks on al qaeda affiliates in pakistan, yemen, will not use other counterterrorism resources to identify, locate and detain the terrorists involved in the death of our ambassador and others in libya. this inconsistent policy may stem from the president's hasty campaign promise to shut down guantanamo bay, gitmo, prematurely transfer detention facilities in iraq and afghanistan. in doing so the president effectively ended america's ability to detain and interrogate terrorists, depriving the f.b.i., the c.i.a. and other agencies of critical opportunities to obtain information on al qaeda networks. today, as the case of benghazi suspect harzi, has demonstrated, the united states is completely reliant on the cooperation of host countries to detain on our behalf and s

presence that permits us to pursue law enforcement objectives, intelligence objectives, military objectives, and so much more. so it's not just about us sitting around and say, you know, do we really want our diplomats at risk? it's ok, what are the equities of the rest of the government that would be effective if we decided we had to close shop because the risk was too great? i want to stress that because i don't think you can understand, at least from my perspective, how difficult the calculation is without knowing that it's not just about the state department and usaid. secondly, i don't think we can retreat from these hard places. we have to harden our security presence but we can't retreat. we've got to be there. we've got to be picking up intelligence information, building relationships and if we had a whole table of some of our most experienced ambassadors sitting here today, they would be speaking with a loud chorus, you know, yes, help us be secure but don't shut us down, don't keep us behind high walls in bunkers so we can't get out and figure out what's going on. that's the balan

to citizenship for some of those law abiding -- otherwise law abiding illegal immigrants in this country. so he's looking at sort of this overall comprehensive package, and the president and his advisors feel like they could make some movement on it in the second term. why? well, you look at who supported the president in the 2012 election. he got more than 70% of the hispanic votes. republicans realize that and you're starting to hear sort of this warming up to the idea to do something about immigration, immigration reform. and so, you know, the president had promised in his first campaign that he was going to make movement on this, did not deliver the way that some hispanics had expected him to do. they're hopeful that in his second term that can happen. >> dan lothian you just used the words warming up, and i know that you got the assignment outside of the national cathedral today and it is bitterly, bitterly cold. i want you to tell me a little bit about the warmth and love inside that cathedral. we're looking at more of the live pictures. this is an awesome event. people may forget it's an
will not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. broadly speaking, i will point to what i said, which is the president's position is we have to remove these damaging fights over fulfilling our obligations to pare bills from the process -- we have to remove them entirely, because they are not helpful to our economic growth or the middle class and they create terrible uncertainty for businesses. we can continue to engage and we will with members of congress over the need to produce our deficit in a balanced way. the president has put forward plans that demonstrate the fact that he's willing to compromise, and is willing to meet republicans halfway on these issues and he will continue to do that. but the debt ceiling needs to not be part of that, because it is terrible for the economy and seems to be bad politics. host: white house press secretary jay carney. let's hear purcellville in broken arrow, oklahoma, republican. what is your advice to republicans for the second obama administration? caller: i love c-span and i am so glad that you have this live call-in talk show from individuals

? >> she went on to be on l.a. law. >> turns out to be a sexy song. see what i mean? >> i would have worn my bell-bottoms if i had known. >> hal: we're on the radio and even the cameras from current can't see below so make it up. >> i have bell-bottoms on. >> it is the theatre of the pants. >> it is not pants-free friday yet. >> hal: that doesn't matter. with jim you don't know. it is a crapshoot. will he have pants today or not? >> i forgot. >> hal: sometimes i'll call in and chris, is it a pants day. he'll go nope. i'll have to pay whoever is in the car with me $5. >> hosen day. >> hal: speaking of later hosen, no, i was leading -- the no pants area, it was just we all had to get slightly dressed up this weekend because we all had balls. >> even jacki. >> jacki and i had balls. >> i did not have balls this weekend. >> no balls. >> didn't want to wear a tux. >> okay. i don't have a tux. >> you can rent a tux. >> i didn't want to travel with a tux. >> you can rent a tux. did you not go to prom? >> it took a month to fit him for a tux. >> have to bring in extra shoulder fabric and create e
truck to criminals. there's no law that says you can't do that, and so now we're giving law enforcement the tools they need to go after these criminals and these criminal networks to make sure they can't be selling the guns right out of the back of a truck. >> what about background checks? what about registration? >> huge. the backgrounds bill is vitally important. senator schumer has been working on this issue for a very long time. what his bill, did ch i co-sponsored, others will as well, is going to basically say you can't buy guns without getting a background check. today about 40% of guns are purchased without a background check, so that means if you have been kwigtsd of domestic violence or are greyly mentally ill or have a record of violence, you could buy a gun off the internet or at a gun show. it's a vast loophole that needs to be closed, and i know that that's something we're going to work on very hard and try to get passed as well. i think the two bills, the -- having the anti-trafficking and closing the background check loopholes going to make a huge difference because once
. outside the court today, his brother-in-law said in his body was proof of murder. >> we some marks on the left and right shoulder, he said. there was a cut on the forearm, and there were marks on his back. it seems he was trying to flee. we believe he was killed. >> the family is looking to the supreme court for answers and for justice. the government has already established a judicial commission to look into his death. a report is due in about 10 days or so. many here wonder if whenever it may be will actually come out. so the supreme court has now ordered its own investigation into the death of the official, saying there were widespread concerns that the inquiry would not be free and fair. bbc news, islamabad. >> now, to london, where the british prime minister, david cameron, talks about a choice about whether to leave the european union if his party wins the next election. it will be the first time in nearly 40 years for the british people to say whether they want to be in the eu or out. some were quick to criticize the move, saying it could block future risk. our correspondent
will be a cirrus law on her record? >> i think it is a flaw. but i don't think it will be a lasting flaw. it was a systemic breakdown. there was an independent review that established there was a lot of culpability of a lot of people on the sixth floor of the state department, but she was on the seventh floor, and certainly, her posture has been she accepts responsibility for what happened but not blame, and that's pret much what played out today in two hearings. she was uncharacteristically emotional in describing the death of the four americans. so i don't think it's going to be an impediment to what everybody assumes are her longer term political ambitions to run for the presidency. >> rose: what struck you about the testimony today that was noteworthy? >> well, there was very little that shed new light on the white house role. you know, there was an independent review conducted of what the-- how the state department handled it because it's required by statute. there's no such statute for how the n.s.c. handled it. it would be interesting if there was. i don't think woe learned a lot

were set to go up by law on january 1. some house republicans said they didn't block it for everyone and they could prevail. speaker boehner brought forth blocking increase for everyone but millionaires, they balked. what passed later is something conservatives like less. they opposed that, too and they lost. some republicans are saying they have more leverage now to force spending cuts. maybe they do. but they will need to be smart about how they use it. with the senate, the white house and most of the press againstbe them, they should not expect a fair fight. >> bret: paul ryan said they need to be careful and remember what you are saying here. you had other members like congresswoman kathy mcmorris rogers in leadership saying you do need to shut down the government and make a stand. >> if the lessons of the 1990s when the republicans took control of the house tell you anything you shouldn't talk about how you are okay with shutting down the government. i said this before. people tell pollsters they want the government cut down, but they don't want the government shut down. republi

. otherwise we are going to be behind the curve again. secondly i think it's important to change the laws about best value contracting versus lowest price technically qualified. by statute the state department guard contracts in dangerous places like libya and everywhere except iraq and afghanistan must be awarded using a lowest price technically acceptable selection process. we have requested a change in the legislation that would allow us to use some discretion to try to deal with the varieties of the local guard forces. we currently have it in afghanistan and pakistan, but it's going to expire. that's something else that i would ask the committee to look into. finally the point that the chairman made and you echoed, congressman, an authorization, i was on the armed serf service committee. it was a great organizing tool and made sure our defense needs were going to be met. i believe in the world in which are we are living, our diplomacy and development needs are important. we don't have the same focus and working with the senate foreign relations committee on authorization where you can
right-to-work laws where people are paid yes. yes, there is slight job growth but these are not living wage. so who has the broken business model? >> who has the jobs. >> carolyn, there's a reason why in right-to-work states people are paid -- what did you say 2-30% less than union workers? >> you no what dells excuse me, carolyn, didn't interrupt you. >> you just laughed during my segment. >> i didn't. because what you're saying is outlandish, when we have historic unemployment, and in right-to-work states, there are more jobs and a better quality of living because we don't have these these artificially inflated health benefits. >> who caused this unemployment? that was the financial sector tanking economy. >> when is president obama going to take responsibility for this economy. let's to -- >> what happened in 2007 when he was in the senate -- >> i want to go back to hostess. neil, hostess had to deal with nearly 400 collective bargaining agreement west virginia the bakers unions and that amounted to 80 different healthcare plans and then 40 different pension plans, and what every
haven't heard anybody in law enforcement connect this -- that the same people responsible, he thinks, for benghazi then went on to that hostage situation in algeria. >>brian: one of the people dead are one of the people said to be in on the benghazi hit. dead in algeria. i don't know where they came from, but they actually perpetrated their crime in algeria. and there are direct links, it seems, among the terrorists, they went from libya maybe with guns, shuttled through qatar to the libyan rebels using those guns against our guys to make that massive hostage grab which resulted in a lot of carnage last week. >>steve: hillary rodham clinton yesterday mentioned that there was a connection. to answer the question, what difference does it make at this point, absolutely. if they would have known that they were terrorists right then, they could have started tracking them down. one of the other things was a couple of times she was complaining about the fact that, you know, essentially she was blaming the republicans. we don't have enough funding for the embassy security and stuff like that
laws? immigration reform? fiscal fights? perhaps, but in the last couple of days he has relaunched the legendary campaign of his, the second term "obama for america" has become an action, and now joining us is bill from the think tank, and from the chicago sun-times, in the flesh, and this is nice and we don't get to do this often. but let me start with you, because i know you did some writing of the new operation, but how do you think that organizing for action can be without the president at the top of the ticket? >> well, because they have such great mailing lists and such very state-of-the-art social media and communications, and i think it is a very effective way of amplifying the bully pull p pit that president obama has and because it is independent of the democratic national committee and has no other goal except to support the president's agenda, this new group which is supposed to be meet iing as we speak at hotel in washington, i think that it can be a powerful amplification and support system for the obama agenda in the second term. >> do you think that this is also som

who disagrees new gun law opponents want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue. is there room for a fear disagreeing with the president or some of the things he did not all of them, is there room with this president? >> i don't think so. he talked about the republican friendly media the other day. obviously, he's talking about talk radio and maybe fox and other websites. this is what he routinely does. rather than have a real conversation, and say, look, i think there are a lot of complicated issues involved here, maybe part gun, maybe part hollywood, maybe part breakdown of the family, let's have a national conversation about this. instead, it's my opponents don't care about the poor children who are suffering, they're not reading the letters that i'm reading, they don't really care and in fact, it's all about their ratings. well, people who believe in the second amendment dearly they happen to have heartfelt views, maybe he disagrees, that's his right, but they shouldn't be demonized. >> one thing i was troubled about today, i don't want another study on this. if there's ano

the curve again. i think it is important to change the laws about the best value contacting versus lois, but a qualified. the state department contracts in dangerous places like libya except iraq and afghanistan must be awarded a using a lowest price technically acceptable selection process. we currently have at -- it's a but it is going to expire. -- it but it's going to expire. the point that the chairman made authorization. working on an authorization, i was on the armed services committee in the senate. we did an authorization every year. it was a great tool. it made sure our defense needs were going to be met. i believe our diplomacy and development needs are very important. we do not have the same focus. working with the senate foreign relations committee on an authorization where you can look everything and have subcommittees' delved into these different issues coming up with an authorization would be a great step forward. >> thank you. >> madam secretary, thank you. thank you for the cause and working relationship we have had during your tenure at the state department. why were

.c. is the first law of nature and these members of congress that represent states that have folks that are against gun control. listen, american people are more astute when it comes to the second amendment and our rights to bear arms. should something be done about violence? yes. but by taking our guns away, and i'm one of the ones that believes in the second amendment that is not the answer. so harry reid, if you recall, was endorsed by the nra, harry reid voted against the assault ban in 2004 and got a b grade from the nra. so if i were giving the democrats any type of advice, they should not follow the president's liberal agenda on gun control. jon: -pt president doesn't have to run for office again. he's won re-election. he has four years to get done what he wants to do. we heard in the inaugural address that he seems to have moved -- well he seems to be pushing some more liberal positions than he espoused earlier. you have senators like tim johnson of south dakota. mark udall of colorado, maryland drew of lashes all of the democratic senators, all of them from states that do not favor increas
mali since last spring and imposing their own harsh brand of islamic law. last week with the extremists only 300 miles from the capital and mallian troops powerless to stop them, the french government launched a series of air strikes. this one captured by civilians on a cell phone. when french ground forces along with malian soldiers arrived in the towns where the militants had been dug in, they had gone, leaving nothing but behind their weapons and local people grateful for what they see as their rescue. the ground troops will continue to push north. their goal is to force the extremists back into the desert, but france has warned that won't be the end of this fight. in fact, it's just the beginning of what promises to be a long and complex struggle to restore stability to this strategic and very fragile region. elizabeth palmer, cbs news. >>> the u.s. commander in afghanistan has been cleared of allegations of professional wrongdoing. general john allen was accused of sending inappropriate e-mails to a civilian in florida, jill kelley. kellie
in strengthening gun laws, but it's also the most controversial. it's called the assaults weapons ban of 2013 and it would reinstate the assault weapons ban that was allowed to lapse back in 2004. it would also restrict the number of bullets in high-capacity magazines. this is legislation that has been waiting in the wings for quite some time, but the lead sponsor, senator dianne feinstein of california is introducing it now in the wake of the sandy hook tragedy. most republicans and some democrats argue that an assault weapons ban is ineffective, that it doesn't do much to reduce gun violence, doesn't do much to deal with the real problem of mental illness and violates the second amendment. but the democrats by and large contend that studies show that the assault weapons ban did work when it was in place and that they plan to deal with things like mental illness and strengthening background checks in future legislation. nancy cortes, cbs news, capitol hill. >>> well also on capitol hill, the debt debate -- debt ceiling crisis rather appears to have been averted, at
. >> rose: do you believe benghazi will be a cirrus law on her record? >> i think it is a flaw. but i don't think it will be a lasting flaw. it was a systemic breakdown. there was an independent review that established there was a lot of culpability of a lot of people on the sixth floor of the state department, but she was on the seventh floor and certainly, her posture has been she accepts responsibility for what happened but not blame, and that's pret much what played out today in two hearings. she was uncharacteristically emotional in describing the death of the four americans. so i don't think it's going to be an impediment to what everybody assumes are her longer term political ambitions to run for the presidency. >> rose: what struck you about the testimony today that was noteworthy? >> well, there was very little that shed new light on the white house role. you know, there was an independent review conducted of what the-- how the state department handled it because it's required by statute. there's no such statute for how the n.s.c. handled it. it would be interesting if there was.
